“In this age of Kali the propensity for mercy is almost nil. Consequently there is always fighting and wars between men and nations. Men do not understand that because they unrestrictedly kill so many animals, they also must be slaughtered like animals in big wars. This is very much evident in the Western countries. In the West, slaughterhouses are maintained without restriction, and therefore every fifth or tenth year there is a big war in which countless people are slaughtered even more cruelly than the animals”.
Srimad-Bhagavatam 4.26.5 Purport
On this tour, 6th expedition this year, we bought 3 vans and equipment for 3 kitchens, Mikolaev, Kherson and Dnipro and we previously bought a van for Kharkiv and Lviv.
There are 150,000 refugees in Dnipro because it’s the biggest city in the Eastern side of Ukraine, the local devotees are doing great service here.
The humble plan is to support these five Temples in the war zone. Please don’t personally travel out to Eastern Ukraine, just send them some funds.
We made one serious mistake, we missed out on the city of Zaporizhzhia, can someone please donate £16,000 to these Vaisnavas?
Devotees have not yet returned to ISKCON Kherson Temple, the Russian army were living there and it has to be checked for bombs before the devotees can return.
Enjoy the video and please support our dear Devotees in Ukraine:
